BEYOND THE WALLS
RE-ENTRY AS PRISON MINISTRY

 
When speaking of prison ministry, naturally the first thought that comes to mind is visiting those who are in custody in detention facilities because of crimes they have committed.  The Catholic grounding for this corporal work of mercy is the respect for human dignity, flowing from the belief that every person is made in the image and likeness of God and that, because of Jesus Christ, redemption is open to all. But prison ministry can extend beyond the walls, and this same faith grounding can be brought to serve those who are being released from custody. This is reentry ministry.
 
With the potentially imminent release of men and women from Oregon prisons because of the pandemic, there will be a greater need than ever for the service of volunteer mentors.  Two webinars are available soon to guide and support those working in this ministry as mentors or those who are discerning.
